Abstract

in English, Spanish

INTRODUCTION:

Modern functional neuroimaging techniques permit the analysis of the simultaneous activation of diverse brain areas to suggest cognitive connectivity models related to specific cognitive functions.

AIM:

To analyze the functional networks of the angular gyrus (Brodmann area 39) related to language functions.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

The database of BrainMap was used to analyze the activation coordinates of the angular gyrus and brain related areas while performing different language tasks. Eight articles were selected that included 13 experiments, 155 participants and 265 loci.

RESULTS:

Sixteen activation clusters made a network that included the activation of the two angular gyri, the superior right parietal lobe and right supramarginal gyri; the superior left temporal lobe (middle lateral and medial inferior), and the frontal lobe (bilateral premotor and left prefrontal).

CONCLUSIONS:

Our findings are in agreement with previous findings using structural connectivity techniques and support the integrative role of the angular gyrus in language functions.
